Handbook for Acquiring a Records Management System (RMS) That is Compatible with the National Incident-Based Reporting System (NIBRS)
United States. Federal Bureau of Investigation
"This handbook has been developed under the sponsorship of the Criminal Justice Information Services (CJIS) Division of the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) and the Bureau of Justice Statistics (BJS). It provides comprehensive, step-by-step guidance to local law enforcement agencies that are, or are considering, implementing an automated incident-based Records Management System (RMS) that is compatible and compliant with the National Incident-Based Reporting System (NIBRS). This handbook provides instructions on how to prepare for and conduct a system acquisition and prepare the agency for conversion to the new system and to NIBRS. It includes lessons learned from other agencies and from vendors and presents relevant templates and examples. The goal of this publication is to take the guesswork out of purchasing a NIBRS-compliant RMS."

Citing HSDL Resources

Documents from the HSDL collection cannot automatically be added to citation managers (e.g. Refworks, Endnotes, etc). This HSDL abstract page contains some of the pieces you may need when citing a resource, such as the author, publisher and date information. We highly recommend you always refer to the resource itself as the most accurate source of information when citing. Here are some sources that can help with formatting citations (particularly for government documents).
